The lion-headed yogini dances with her right leg raised. This posture is known as ardhaparyanka. Her left leg is placed on the chest of a male figure lying on a triangular lotus base. The right hand brandishes a vajra-chopper and the left holds a skull overflowing with fresh red blood. She has a slight pot-belly and wears a five-skull tiara seen emerging from her red hair. She is clad in a tiger skin and her scarf whirls behind her to form a halo. She wears a garland of freshly severed heads extending down to her knees and supports a long khatavanga in the nook of her left hand.
Exuberant movement is the essence of this wrathful female deity. Everything contributes towards that end: the dancing posture, the active arms, the leaping flames of the aureole and the scowling face.
